The First Challenge at the Craft-Room Challenge Blog...Come Join Us!!

Today is an exciting day!!!!
  The first challenge at the Craft-Room Challenge Blog.  The theme is Anything Goes (One of my favorites!!)   I decided to make a ATC Card.  The ATC Card I made is using a papertowel spritzed with lots of ink and then glued to paper.  I made a handmade flower and added a vintage image and little bit of sparkle with the butterfly. I really like the effect of the papertowel. 


So please come join us and sign up to follow The Craft-Room Challenge
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs, Kim

  4. The paper towel technique is such a fun way of creating a beautiful, dimensional background and you, Kim, have mastered it on this piece of artwork. Stopping by to say Hi and welcome to the Dezinaworld Design Team. June is awesome and her images are outstanding. I have been with her since she started DW and I know you will enjoy creating artwork for her as much as I do. Stop by my blog http://gaylepage-robak.blogspot.com . Hugs, Gayle.
